About us

Linova Software GmbH was founded in March 2008 by three managing directors and launched headlong into the business of software development and consulting projects in the automotive and aviation sectors. Loyalty, dedication and quality – with these principles driving it, Linova was able to win new orders and attract employees in its founding year and has been on a course of substantial growth ever since. Our company attaches great importance to sustainable customer relationships and a solid base of team-minded colleagues. Today we have more than 25 permanent professionals and a network of freelancers, students, scientific staff and doctoral candidates. With our in-depth industry knowledge and excellent technical know-how, we have successfully specialised in digitisation projects for medium-sized and large corporate clients. In the meantime, we can look back on more than 10 years of company history and are proud that we can still count friends among our staff, who have gone through the founding period with us.

Holistic way of working

Regardless of whether our customers entrust us with the complete and independent implementation of individual software, or with the realisation of individual components or the collaboration in specific phases in a digitalisation programme – we always look at the big picture, even if the big picture is not necessarily our sole responsibility. Parallel to the technical perspective, we always have the economic and non-technical aspects of a successful digitalisation strategy in mind.

Precise use of technologies

As software experts, we are naturally technology-oriented and are curious about new technologies, not to mention their suitability for practical use. However, neither we nor our customers have any added value from “framework hopping”. We therefore work with proven templates, principles and technology kits. This allows us to concentrate on the respective technical areas, while keeping a critical eye on our own procedures and our current technology stack.
